Lake Pelham Kayak Tour

Join FOR River Steward October Greenfield for a guided paddle tour of Lake Pelham. This morning float begins and ends at the public boat ramp at The Ole Country Store. This trip is flat water only. Minimum age is 12 years and some paddling experience is helpful.
Did you know that Lake Pelham is known for having more channel catfish per acre than nearly any other lake in Northern Virginia? Lake Pelham is water supply reservoir for the Town of Culpeper, covering 255 acres of forested and open shoreline. On this trip we will learn about water quality, drinking water, and the natural ecology and wildlife of the area.
Meet at The Ole County Store at 9:45 a.m. to check-in. The Ole Country Store is located at 18019 Country Store Dr, Culpeper, VA 22701. The boat ramp is located behind the building. We’ll launch from the boat ramp and expect to return by noon.
Your ticket purchase includes kayak, paddle, and life jacket. Attendees bring snacks, sunscreen, water bottle, insect repellent, and wear a hat.
